Homeschooling in West Virginia has more than doubled this past year according to a report by the U.S. Census Bureau. In fact, West Virginia is one of nine states with double digit growth!
Last spring, 5.4% of West Virginian households with school-aged children reported homeschooling. By October, that number had risen to 16.6% – an 11.2 point increase!
Nationwide increase is an impressive 5.6% overall, with only two states showing negative growth. The report also clarified that these were households reporting “true homeschooling rather than virtual learning through a public or private school.”
